Yoga is not slow and boring .You can use Asanas and Kriyas to achieve weight loss. People often think that Yoga is only meditation or only Spirituality. Yoga is definitely a path of spirituality but it works first on the physical body. It is a great tool for weight loss and finally when you are happy with your physical body, you un-fog your mind and get into the social & spiritual aspects of yoga.
Yoga teaches five aspects of fitness- endurance, strength, stamina, agility & body composition. You may not be fat but you may lack flexibility.
It is hard to be unhealthy once you start yoga –Saif Ali Khan
Yoga is the best kind of exercise.
Rani & Kareena were both hard core gym people .In fact Bebo went to gym for eight years before she joined Yoga and after that she hasn’t been back to a gym ever.
One thing I recommend very strongly is the Surya Namaskar.Its like a magic wand to keep you healthy. If you really want to work on yourself, start with five Surya Namaskar a day and then do as many as your body can take .It works on your weight, blood circulation, your entire system…so that your skin glows
